So glad he such a big turnout.
Come back to the us moar plz.
One of the best fucking sets of the weekend, hands down. The size of the crowd in the Mojave was perfect, the sunset was perfect, the music was fucking amazing...I feel very sorry for anyone who missed this.
Fucking phenomenal. I nearly had tears in my eyes during that sunset. Take Me Into Your Skin was perfect, and we rocked the fuck out for Silver Surfer.

I enjoyed the last CD and looked forward to the live show, but this still vastly exceeded myt expectation. Simply amazing.
Best set of the weekend. Just wow
Definitely one of my favorites of the weekend.
Trentemøller was fucking awesome. Such beautifully intricate, haunting music. Perfect set for that time of day. And in addition to the sunset, how about that awesome breeze that gusted through the back of the Mojave about halfway through his set? After such a scorching weekend it was like the best kind of air-conditioning I could think of. That's when I knew it was gonna be a good night. Mojave owned.
I couldn't get a single person in my group to come, I'm so glad I ditched them and went alone. I couldn't believe how much energy the set had... fucking incredible
careful with that axe Eugene
the artistic ability behind this production was my favorite of the weekend. incredible array of the most insane instruments behind an absolute scorching sound. so fucking happy that i made it to Trentmoller.
Henrik Vibskov is the man
Outdoor stage next year pretty please! This was the highlight of my wknd other thn PJ Harvey.
"Oh this uncertainty is taking me over"
I had very high expectations going into this and was absolutely blown away! I really believe this set was as perfect as possible. As far as I see it, Trentemoller fucking painted that pristine sunset and blew us away simultaneously with the desert wind ushering the sweet sounds and epic energy in a wonderful whirlwind of ecstacy under the sacred canopy of the Mojave. I have never jumped around so passionately and experienced such a deep spectrum of emotions all at once in my life, not to mention all the while sober. My cell phone definitely flew out from my pocket at one point and I'm sure was crushed to oblivion as it was never to be seen again, and my only reaction was "what a perfect way to lose my phone!" as devastating as it was. Trentemoller owned Sunday for sure, and possibly the weekend (with my conflicting reverence for Beardyman but I can't compare the two) and the trifecta of Trentemoller=>Ratatat=>Leftfield couldn't have been any better! I wish I had more than half an ounce of energy left to rage to Presets to end the weekend but Trentemoller alone literally left me hunched over panting like a dog! Thank you Anders, you are an electronic legend and a God! and Thank you Coachella! P.S. if anyone has or knows the whereabouts of my phone, please PM me, thanks!
Started the set in the tent near the left side of the stage, but moved out from under the tent after looking back & seeing that sunset. I snapped some pics & then turned to go back into the tent, but then I saw that huge moon rising behind the stage. My wife and I sat outside the tent & just enjoyed the moment of having the sun setting behind us with the seemingly full moon rising in front of us, all while watching Trentemoller. It's these kind of moments that make Coachella so special.
I feel bad for anyone who missed this. Amazing set.

I straight went to another realm...it was nothing short of amazing
I am so happy I come on these boards sometimes. Trentemoller and Sasha were two acts I wouldn't have known of without you guys and they ended up being two of the best shows I saw all weekend. Truly amazing...
Managed to get the rail for this show. My mushrooms were kicking in and was starting to get a little anxious. They started performing and all feelings of anxiety were taken away, buried underground while I orbited Mars. Also, I'll put these photos here.
"Give me women, wine and snuff
Until I cry out 'hold, enough!"
Great Pics. I had to leave after three songs for Duran Duran but it didn't seem that crowded at all. Did it fill in towards the end of their set?
I had lots of room around me near the back, but honestly, it was like that at nearly all the performances I saw, which was a godsend.
The only performances I saw that were really crowded were Cut Copy and Ratatat.
